Recently, I have come across this screen recording from a Google blog:

enter image description here


Notice how the mouse pointer moves in straight lines and perfectly accelerated and decelerated. Also, note the zooming in and out.

To me, it looks like all mouse actions were captured, restricted to essentials (mouse clicks), then interpolated (straight motion between clicks), and then replayed and the screen captured.

What tools are available to create screen recordings such as these?

You can check out Adobe Captivate. It seems to be able to do what you are looking for. Here is an example cursor movement editing.
